For me too, this palette it’s way too dark (fair skin here).
I’ve just received the Clinique Nude Up-lighting Illuminating Powder (thanks to Christine’s review 🙂 ) and it’s wonderful on my skin ! Very natural, like a touch of light.

This is often my feeling when cheek products come in palettes like this – “I don’t need both warm and cool blushes as I only wear cool” and it’s the same with this palette, as pretty as it is. When I looked at it, I thought it was bronzers and a blush!

I completely agree. Unless you’re a professional makeup artist who works on different skintones and needs a kit to cover that, having highlighters to suit every skintone “in one place” just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me. Not an appealing way to describe it to most conscious buyers, I don’t think.

My thoughts exactly!! I’m light/light medium and hoping all 3 shades will work for me, but if they don’t, I can’t justify $39. She should’ve issued 3 separate shades, which would’ve made it more affordable and portable too. This looks kind of big to tuck into your purse

I agree- it’s kinda dumb to put tones for different complexions into on palette- unless you are a pro who will be using it on all kinds of clients, then it’s just a waste. That, and the colors look really dark to me.

I agree with that 110%. These ought to have been sold separately, not in a palette. And I’m saying this as one who is dark enough to wear all 3. Guess it’s just that I like to pick a favorite shade or two instead of then being saddled with shades I don’t care for, much less use!

…so they thought it was a good idea to market a shade each for three vastly different skin tones…in the same palette? I’m not understanding their logic. At. All. Maybe this is meant for pro makeup artists?

This is a solid pass for me; even the lightest would be too dark for my skin tone.

I agree!

Unless I am missing something – maybe they are shades that are supposed to look good on all skin tones. Some Becca and Hourglass products do that, looking beige on lighter and golden on deeper skintones.

Well people would have complained if they didn’t have colors for darker or lighter tones. So I guess they can’t win either way. MUG probably said they wanted a highlighter palette and she chose the shades. Maybe based on the success of the palette, they will offer individual shades?

Looks so beautiful. At the Moment I am on a highlighter, blush buying Trip. Like them all so much although I Do not use it very often. But they all Look so good. I Love highlighters.

Marlena swatched/applied it on snapchat and she flat out said they look darker in the pan than on the skin. The bronze color is dark but not like you’d expect.

I love Kathleen, but I won’t be jumping on this palette. The swatches didn’t seem too impressive. Perhaps, I’ll change my mind when I read some reviews.

I find this odd. Not that I don’t agree with you guys that they look dark. Doubt that this is the place to discuss ethnicity, but we’ve all seen her, due to her collabs w/ CP. ( kind of surprised this or some other iteration did not come out with them. Didn’t know that vloggers were free agents.). Her photos look light medium, warm. As her last name is Fuentes and she is from Miami, I am inferring that she is of generally Cuban descent, a Latina. I redacted everything I thought to say about Cuba, bec I can’t put it right.She does not look as deep as J Lo to me. And J Lo is medium, I think. So I cannot imagine that these are as dark as they look. They do look more like shimmery blushes. And the reformulation of MUG’s blushes has no shimmery shades. Off to MUG, to see what they say.

Just giving my two cents as a mixed race person, Kathleen is Cuban. But she’s most likely mixed/biracial, or just a light skinned Latina. Latina’s cone in ALL shades and skin tones.

I’m half First nation, and while I have all of the features (the almond eyes, cheek bones, big lips, hooded eyes, wide flat nose,etc) I’m medium light skinned.

You know?

I realize that. But Cuban society was more highly stratified in the pre Fidel age. There was not as much interesting admixture as in Puerto Rican and Mexican societies. Every Cuban refugee I met in the 60s and 70s was whiter than me. Not interesting, like my BFF in college (California) who was of Mexican ethnicity, but favored her First Nation side., rather than any euro Spanish ancestors. I realize there are black and native Caribbean populations in Cuba, but the oligarchy was largely white Euro. One of the main reasons for the Revolution. You are fortunate with your features, play them up. I just think she (Kathleen Fuentes) looks kind of gringa! And based on the lightness of her skin, I would not expect the product to be as dark as it looks. But not every blogger creates product with herself/himself in mind.

And, btw, I had to google her to find out her name and hometown. I don’t know much about her, and I don’t know if she self- or audience- identifies as Latina. Every one knows other gorgeous women: J, the Evas, Salma, etc, and being Latina is what gives them their beauty.

Ugh…I ordered it. Maybe I shouldn’t have, after reading the comments here. I’m medium/light skin tone. I’ll report back when I receive it. Fingers crossed!

Palette looks gorgeous, but I think only the middle shade would work for me. This palette would be great if you have roommates with different skin tones to share it with, but I agree that all the colours may not work for the same person.
